                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Owned by two best friends, Holly Slinkard and Tracey Smith. We purchased our main property McKinley Creekside Cabins & Cafe in 1997 and the 'Carlo House' in 2009. Both of us being avid travelers ourselves, our goal was to create a place 'Where guests become friends'. We found in our travels that the best experiences, had more to do with the people we met and friends made on the journey. We both live in Alaska year round. Holly spends 8 months in Denali and the remainder in Anchorage and traveling the world in the off season. Tracey lives in Palmer with her husband and son. We are most thankful to the Lord above, all our guests and crew members for making this life possible in such an amazing place. We know you will enjoy your time at the 'Carlo House' and Denali National Park, truly an amazing place!

                      Why the Owner Chose Denali:
                      Denali is an amazing place where one can explore the park and surrounding areas for a lifetime and never see it all...the Carlo House provides a great location that is close to the park. Nestled in the woods with amazing panoramic mountain views and all the comforts of home!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Close to Denali National Park with all the comforts of home. Enjoy the seclusion of this custom home on 3+ wooded acres. In the summer enjoy hiking trails out your back door, biking, horse shoes, campfires and close to all the park activities. In the winter enjoy world class trials to go snow shoeing, cross country skiing, as well as amazing Northern Lights viewing and winter park and local activities.
